Question Trolley jack and axle stands advice

I'm planning on changing the coolant on my Zafira 2004

Sorry if this sounds really basic, but I've borrowed a trolley jack and axle stands and would like some advice on the best jacking points, and whether axle stand placement is obvious once the car is jacked up.

I'm working on the front, but seeing as I'm asking this now, might be helpful to check out jacking points for the back too.

by the way - I'm familiar with where the jacking points are for the jack that is supplied with the car (with the shape that fits the cut out beneath the car) - is it as simple as using that same position even though the trolley jack doesn't have the same contact shape as the car's own jack?

Yeah, same position as that jack, you might find the car bends or moves if you jack it up from anywhere else. Just take care and make sure it's safe before you get underneath it.
